Law enforcement officials served William R. Moss, 24, Brazil, with an arrest warrant for two counts each of class B felony dealing in methamphetamine and class D felony possession of methamphetamine charges Aug. 5.
Moss, with defense attorney Charles Hear, negotiated a plea agreement with the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
Taking the motion into consideration in November, Clay Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers ruled in favor of agreement earlier this month.
Moss agreed to plead guilty to one count of class B felony dealing methamphetamine (a lesser count), while the state would dismiss the remaining three charges.
Akers sentenced Moss to 20 years at the Indiana Department of Correction, with 15 years to be executed (5 were suspended) in a facility that will allow him an opportunity to participate in the Clean Lifestyle Is Freedom Forever (CLIFF) Program.
Moss was given credit for 237 days previously served in jail and allowed to have good time credit while incarcerated, if applicable.
Upon completion of his sentence, Moss will be placed on 5 years formal probation.
The court also ordered Moss to obey all local, state and federal laws; pay all fines, fees and restitution; enroll and pay the fees for a substance abuse treatment program; not possess firearms, ammunition or possess/consume alcohol; submit to random drug screens and provide a DNA sample to the court.
